Harriet Tubman: Quest For Freedom
She was 29 years old and a slave. She had never been to school, and could not read or write. She had been beaten, abused and humiliated. Except for the few square miles around her home, she knew nothing of the outside world. Yet, one Spring evening in 1849, she boldly charged into a world she had never seen, in search of a place she had never been, hoping to find something she had never known – Freedom. Her name was Harriet Tubman – they called her Moses. In the “Quest for Freedom” we meet Harriet through the eyes of a young man from our own times, a young man who has lost the courage to dream. One day he enters a mysterious library. Suddenly he is trapped in the past, a slave on a plantation with Harriet. He discovers that without courage, there are no dreams, and without dreams, there is no future.
